Petcare at the click of a mouse

A pet care company thought up over a glass of wine, which now has about 100 part-time staff in Wellington, is just months away from a South Island launch.

Pet Angels, which allows pet owners to book services including pet walking, feeding and grooming entirely online is expecting to sign an out-licensing agreement for the firm to be launched in Christchurch in around two months' time.

Who would have thought that kiwis are willing to spend $45 a night for dog boarding at someone's home.

There's a business model for pet care, and good on them for making money. Just didn't think that Kiwis were prepared to spend that much money. Hum...
